Topic: 5-year scan

Went for my 5-year scan on Monday and to see the oncologist today and the good news is that my scan was clear!  There was some "transient" things on the scan that seem to show on all of my scans in different places on different scans.  It has something to do with the way the contrast is picked up in my liver but doesn't represent anything other than noise on the image.  My oncologist said he is almost done with me.

I feel blessed and lucky and only wish that everyone on here could get the same good news.

Best wishes to all,
-Randi-

it's my 20-15-5 survivorship year and I am enjoying every minute. smile

Re: 5-year scan

Thank you everyone!  I really did not think I would be here in 2014, much less be healthy.  I try and take each day as it comes and these past five years have been some of the most rewarding (and challenging) for me.  I met so many wonderful people on my CC journey.  Thanx again!

Re: 5-year scan

Ha, Ha Duke. It is always good to wake up and start laughing. You do quite well, next is your Bar Mitzvah! Don't laugh, at 65 I was Bat Mitzvah. But at 74 I can't remember much. Have a great day, today is infusion day for me with the Remicade for colitis. I am starting to self prescribe! I was on 4 vials for 9 months and my GI had LABs done which showed I was not rejecting the Remicade but that I was not getting enough. So July 2nd increased me from the 4 to 7. Oh, man, I have had 2 months from hell.  So I called him Monday and said I will take the 4 but not the 7. I am no better than when I did take the 4 so why suffer more? I know I will get yelled at but I just have this feeling to go off all Meds for 2 weeks (nothing is life threatening) and see how I feel. I need a break. Know what I mean? Anyway, I am extremely happy to see you on the site more as I always look forward to your posts!
